Then a black cat emerged. His name is Spike, named after Spike Lee. I laughed so hard at his interlude.
He had to be the star of the show. Disrespectful ass cat. But he's a stunner so I get it. Spike does what he wants and we just have to deal. https://t.co/8GQx3qgRpj— Morgan Jerkins (@MorganJerkins) February 13, 2018
I still can't believe Spike the cat interrupted my speech last night. You see, ladies? It doesn't matter the species the male is in--homo sapiens, felis silvestris--he's always gonna try to center himself for five seconds.— Morgan Jerkins (@MorganJerkins) February 13, 2018
